That's not quite the same thing.  The new module simply exposes some
normally closed-from-Python-code data structures to the Python programmer.
Enabling threads requires some support from the underlying runtime system.
If that was already in place, I suspect the Mac binaries would come with the
thread module enabled by default, yes?
